    Just the title. I’ve been married for 26 years, and have worked full time for 19 of them.

    My college aged kids and I are sick with Covid (confirmed test) and my husband comes home last night and says “what were you thinking for dinner?”

    We ordered take out. So this afternoon I dragged my butt into the kitchen and we’re having ribs and au gratin potatoes to save us 75 bucks. I’m sick as fuck and he asks me if I’ve switched laundry today.

    Thanks for coming to my vent.




    I’m sorry that’s happening, is he the type who would be receptive to having a conversation about that?



    I’m so sorry. Tomorrow tell him to make everyone Turkey sandwiches. And no you should t have to tell him.



    My answer would be “Whatever you feel like making. I am not up to cooking right now.” Would he possibly be receptive to that? Or would he just order takeout?

    Good luck to you, I hope you have a fast recovery.



    …well, I hope your husband has some other qualities because otherwise I don’t understand why you stay with him.
    What a childish, egoistical person.



    Shouldn’t he be quarantining away from you in the house until he gets a negative test?



    Twenty six years and it seems like he doesn’t know how to be a caregiver. Reading through the comments and OP’s replies are heartbreaking. You’re sick! But you’re just like he is who he is. I’m sorry that you’re unwell and have a partner who can’t even make an effort, regardless of whether it’s not his strong suit or not.



    Canned soup!



    I urge you to stand up for yourself and refuse to cook while you should be recovering.



    “I don’t know. I’m really sick. Why don’t you figure it out?”

    For goodness sakes a rotisserie chicken and some salad from the supermarket is probably less than ribs.
